I have been a poet for more than twenty years, and I write poems in several styles. Now I have a book that has been published by Wipf and Stock Publishers titled 'My Mind Simply Saying.' If you would like a copy, go to them or try Amazon.boooks. It gives an interesting and pleasurable reading. If you like fun and meaningful poetry, this book will give you that.

My advice to young poets is to write from the heart and not be so argumentative when they read comments on their poems that do not go well or agree with the estimation they have of them. Criticism is part of writing and poetry gets a lot of it. Even the great Shakespeare does not have everybody agreeing that all his poetry is of supreme value or excellence.

Write, but especially try to read all kinds of poems, from the formal like the sonnet, the ode, the song to light verse and free style compositions. You can learn from all of them. If you want to be or become a good poet, you have to be serious about it. But if you write for just fun, or to let your feelings out, this is all-right, too.
